Description

    Secrets Behind The Comics #1 (Famous Enterprises Inc., 1947) Condition: FN/VF. Stan Lee was only in his mid-twenties when he wrote this book, yet as it proclaims, "He has been in complete charge of more comic magazines than any other living editor." This book was advertised in Timely comics upon publication. It has a two-color paper cover. It's not a comic, though it is hand-lettered in true comic style. Smilin' Stan's text is primarily illustrated by Ken Bald. The book has tons of great features including a profile on Syd Shores (with four pages of his Blonde Phantom reproduced), and Mike Sekowsky, Basil Wolverton, Al Jaffee and Martin Goodman are profiled as well. There is a detailed description of how Captain America was created, with several nice images of him. Probably the first book of its kind ever published. Not listed in Overstreet.
